Terminally Ill Woman To Delay Ending Her Life

Brittany Maynard, the 29-year-old Oregon woman who chose to die with dignity, is now saying she may not choose to die this coming weekend.

In a video released to CNN Wednesday, Maynard said “it doesn’t seem like the right time right now.”  She says she still feels well enough to enjoy her family and wants to continue to do that as long as possible.

She also wrote this message on her youtube channel… “I want to thank you for your incredible support. The outpouring of kindness that I have received since my story went public has been astounding.

You’ve helped put the death-with-dignity movement in the hearts and minds of millions of Americans. All across the country, lawmakers have reached out saying that they want to introduce legislation to authorize aid in dying. That is real progress towards change.”

      The strength she has is directly given to her by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We owe everything to Him and must always be obedient to Him. I know this is a very controversial issue, but the whole country is praying for her that Jesus intervene…appears He is doing just that.

    I can’t say that i 100% agree that i think a law should be passed to make this legal in all states. Right after i was born my mother was given 6 months to live due to cancer… well guess what im almost 28 years old and my mother is still alive!

    Maybe the prayers of those who really care for her and value all life are working better than the encouragement of those who are trying to push her off the cliff.

    I would like to say you are one awesome lady. I will pray for you and your family. I would love to share that I lost a very close friend to cancer and he chose death with dignity, he called it drinking the kool-Aid. m I didn’t agree but understood. he got to sick to fast to make it to Oregon. He passed way in his home on a beautiful day with the birds singing. we opened his windows so he could hear them. my husband sang to him and played his favorite song on his guitar. get together by the Beatles he smiled at my husband and was very happy. and he passed. I know what its like to be so sick and like you were saying people don’t understand fully how you feel. I suffer from a blood disorder its hard to pretend you are okay sometimes. I think you are wonderful and I hope you don’t mind sharing your story . It touched my heart . god be with you and your family.
    sincerely
    sorry ):

    I would just like to say that I applaud you for your decision & completely respect you. Had I known this was an option, I would have gotten some information myself for my parents. My parents worst fear was to die, suffering with pain & the inability to care for themselves. Well, that’s how they both died. It’s something I will never get over & am now fearful of that same fate myself. Nobody deserves to go out like that. I was raised with the belief that suicide is a sin & if you committed it, you would burn in hell for eternity. That thinking has actually saved my life when I was going through some very tough times & thought about ending it all. Having to watch all the suffering my Mother went through with cancer spreading all over body & then a few yrs later, watching my Father lose his every thought due to dementia, killed me. I’m thankful to you for seeing your story because I now know that, if ever faced with an illness like this myself, I would make the same choice your making. Every person should be allowed that right. I don’t want my children to witness what I did with my parents. And I don’t want to go through what my parents went through. I’m a good person, as were they. It’s just not fair. God does not judge, and neither should anybody else. God Bless you & your loved ones. I’m so sorry you have been diagnosed with such an awful disease. But just know this, you have educated so many people with your story. To me, you are a superwoman. I hope you beat the odds that they have given you and live & enjoy many, many more days of beauty, love and sunshine. May God be with you in your dark hours.

    We give the right to women to terminate pregnancy what is the difference in letting someone in a terminal situation the right to choose. At least the terminal patient is alive to make their own choice.

    Please, don’t do that! Don’t throw your life away. Dignity isn’t about- I choose whenever I want and however I want to die; it’s about accepting God’s will, and when you do that, He will help. Otherwise, when rejected, He will not interfere in your life. Do you know who was Fr. Seraphim Rose? Find out how he lived and died. Truly brave man!
